We attended a Vintage fair here on Saturday which was excellent. It's a lovely little place with a nice friendly cafe serving drinks and delicious cakes. I can imagine it's a great atmosphere and will keep an eye out for forthcoming events and return.

Wonderful production of this Play. Our first visit to the Playhouse was a total joy. The staff are helpful and very friendly, the venue is easy to find and parking is free although you may have a short walk.

We were at Ilkley for the Tour De France and the playhouse was temporarily opened as a cafe. Friendly and informative staff and clean facilities despite being opened to the public for the weekend.

Last show seen was Torch Song Triology in the smaller of the two theatres - great production - well directed and acted with excellent support behind the scenes. As usual a higher than average performance worth checking out what's on when you visit Ilkley.
